A long time ago and I mean a looooooong time ago, like well over two years ago I released a stat block for an ancient brown dragon. You can see that, as well as my methodology, right here at the jump. At the time I promised to work on the other age categories for the brown dragon, as well as stat blocks for the gray dragon and purple dragon which had been released in the same book. I misplaced my notes at one point, had to re-make a good third of the PDF from scratch, only to then re-discovered those missing notes again just this morning. Draconomicon I: Chromatic Dragons focuses solely on the three chromatic dragons first released in the original 4e book; the brown dragon, gray dragon, and purple dragon. Each set of monsters comes with appropriate lore pertaining to their lifestyles and habits, as well as their lairs and additional combat options such as lair actions.
Like TSR's other prestige series, one factor in the production of the FOR books was likely that they were cheap to produce and sold well.
A History of Monster Books. As a complete book-length reference on dragons including psychology, some physiology, geographical notes, and more , Draconomicon was a first for TSR. Draconomicon author Nigel Findley had written a few of the ecology articles himself, covering the gibbering mouther, the greenhag, the peryton, and the will-o-the-wisp.
Chaosium's Trollpak was another major touchstone, though those trolls were usable as PCs. Mayfair Games had been the only company to publish fantasy monster books as more than a one-off.
Though their Roleaids line included books on PC races like "Dwarves" and "Elves" , it also included other releases like "Dark Folks" , their own "Dragons" , and "Giants" Monster sourcebooks really became popular much later, in the early s, when they became a potential venue for d20 publication. Why did TSR choose dragons for their first monster book release? Everyone loved dragons, and TSR had a long history of writing about them often in their anniversary issues of Dragon.
Expanding the Realms. Prior to this book, most information on dragons in the Realms centered on the Cult of the Dragon, a group focused on raising dracoliches.
They also appeared in his Spellfire novel.
Surprisingly, the Cult and its dracoliches were barely touched upon in Draconomicon, though. New Metallics are definitely coming! I do have a community question; would people prefer the new dragons be introduced slowly over time so maybe one or two get added at a time or wait for all the new metallics to be introduced at once? As more time passes though, I'm leaning more and more towards just changing this document to be an all-encompassing Draconomicon, and updating it when new dragons comes out, rather than making all-new documents.
Haven't quite decided yet. Metallics will be coming first with Draconomicon II. I'm constantly checking and hoping.
I'm super excited for it. I'm constantly checking and hoping.
I'm super excited for it. I have three or four homebrew projects I go back-and-forth on depending on my inspiration and the time I have available to me I wish I could make this a full-time thing, but unfortunately I can't and my real-person job has gotten very busy in the last month or so.
I do promise you it's being worked on, though. I can tell you that before Draconomicon II comes out there will be an edit to this pdf here, as I discovered a few spelling errors, mistakes in the statblocks Ancient Brown Dragon should have a burrow speed of 40 feet, for example , and I am currently re-working my Dragon Shaman as its own class instead of a Barbarian subclass.
Can't wait for volumes 2 and 3! Will we see either soon?
